LYONS FERRY STATE PARK
Covering over 52,000 feet of shoreline along the Snake River, Lyons Ferry Park is a popular summertime attraction for campers, boaters, water-skiers and anyone else who loves soaking up the sun along a riverbank.
Lyons Ferry Park marks the site of early settlements of the Palouse Indians. It covers more than a thousand acres and has plenty of freshwater shoreline on the Snake River. The park is a haven for boating, camping, fishing, hiking, picnicking, swimming and water skiing. With average summer temperatures in the 90s, it's a cool shaded spot to find some relief from the sun.
The name Lyons Ferry is associated with a ferry once powered by river current. The ferry and its predecessors crossed the Snake River for 108 years, providing an important link for the Palouse country with the Old Mullan Road.
